Hi Barton,

First it looks like I need to update my GTK+ (2.2.1-4 installed). After I grabbed the newest GTK, GLib, Pango and ATK tar balls as well as GIMP 2.0.1, I realized that I don't know the procedure for updating an RPM with a program from source code.

Being honest, if you really want to build from source code, you're better off building from RedHat 9 SRPMs using rpmbuild. There are srpms for everything you need on http://xach.com/gimp/rpms/

That's the one you need, although 2.2.1 might be missing some fixes we rely on. You do need gtk+ >= 2.2.2 though, and we reccommend >= 2.2.4 since there are a number of important bug fixes in there. Both of those should build OK against glib 2.2.1, though.
